This worksheet will guide pupils through using equivalent fractions to add and subtract fractions with different denominators.
Sections A and B are match-up activities where pupils have to match up equivalent calculations such as ⅛ + ½ = ⅛ + 4⁄8 .
Section C begins with an example which is followed by nine addition and subtraction questions. Scaffolding is slowly removed as the section progresses to lead students to independently answer the questions.
All fractions have denominators less than or equal to sixteen and in each calculation, one denominator is a multiple of the other. In addition to this, all answers are within 1.
